## Homework Statement

Consider the following arrangement of potentials and a test charge (not pictured) located at infinity. - To which location will a test charge of +3 microColumbs travel?

The potentials are as follows:

- (-1V) top left
- (-7V) top right
- (+1V) lower left
- (+4v) lower right

They do not line up(top left is further left than bottom left, etc.), and no distances are given

## Homework Equations

force = q * E (charge * field strength)

All of the other equations I can think of require distance

## The Attempt at a Solution

I honestly don't know what to do here. If I was given distances I would be able to calculate the force on the charge, but since I am not I do not know how to calculate where exactly it will end up. I assume it will be near the -7V charge, but that is a very general answer. If someone could shed a little light on how I could figure this out I'd greatly appreciate it

Thanks!
